Carrier Tape > Homogenous PS+C Type P Carrier Tape

Advantek’s PS+C (polystyrene plus carbon) carrier tape is a specially modified static dissipative polystyrene offering good strength and stability over time and temperature variations for a limited range of tape designs. This material is suitable for high volume (>1Million meters per year) carrier tapes at pre-determined standard reel lengths. The P material offers exceptional protection at a lower cost than our standard C material. It is currently available in 0.30mm thickness.
